The Bachchans are all set to celebrate Aishwarya's godbharai (baby shower) on October 18, 2011. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is due to deliver her baby next month.
Her mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan has made some grand preparations for the ritual as Jalsa-the Bachchans' residence-was set to bustle with activity later in the day.
Make-up artist Mickey Contractor was spotted entering the house earlier in the day to glam up the would-be mother. The possible celebrity attendees of the function included Gauri Khan, Sonali Bendre, Suzzanne Roshan, Manyatta Dutt, Kirron Kher, Twinkle Khanna and Kajol. However, Amitabh Bachchan has been missing all the action since the veteran actor was yet to return from Australia, where he has been shooting for The Great Gatsby.
